Very nice war clubs. Why do you think that the Massim ones are lances as opposed to sword clubs? I agree that they could be used for stabbing however they probably weigh at least as much as a European sword and in skilled hands, they could easily break a collar bone, a limb, or crack a skull and disable a foe. I remember recently reading how the Spanish Conquistadores were impressed by the skill of the Aztecs who wielded their sword clubs; the difference being that theirs were wood and the Spaniards being of steel.
